Country singer Blake Shelton believes God brought him and Gwen Stefani together, at at time when they both needed it the most.
“How (Gwen) came into my life and now our relationship — It’s just too weird. If you take God out of it, it doesn’t make sense,” Blake said. “If you put God into it, everything that’s happened with us makes sense.”
The two met on the set of NBC’s singing show The Voice in 2015. On-camera, the two smiled and joked as judges on the show. But off-camera was a different story.
Both Blake and Gwen were in the midst of messy divorces. This shared pain brought them together as friends, at first.
“It was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time,” Gwen Stefani said of their similar situations.
They regularly checked in on each other and offered supported.
“Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces,” Blake said.
